    Fairwinds Golf Club was voted the “#1 Golf Course on Vancouver Island” in the 2013 BC’s Best – People’s Choice Awards by BCLiving.ca. Designed by renowned architect Les Furber, the course at Fairwinds Golf Club has established itself as a premier golf destination on Vancouver Island. The natural beauty of Fairwinds will change your state of mind… and possibly your state of play.

    If your golf game needs help, our instructors will help you reach a new level of confidence in your game.

    No matter what your skill level or swing needs are, we can help you on your journey to becoming a better golfer.

    After a round of golf, enjoy your favourite beverage and a well-deserved lunch at Fairwinds Bar & Grill. Overlooking the 9th green, this is where the stories are told and you can catch up on the world of golf. Enjoying the sun on our patio can erase any bad shots you may have had, while remembering the good ones.

    Practice your swing at the driving range, use the practice green and surroundings to refine your putting and chipping, or sharpen your sand-play skills from the green-side bunker.

    Stocked with new Callaway full-flight range balls, our range is open seven days a week, all year round. We have 16 grass-tee hitting areas available during the summer months and 18 hitting stalls open through the winter, six of which are covered and heated.

    Just a short distance away, Schooner Cove Marina has become a preferred stop-over for boaters cruising the coast or exploring nearby Gulf Islands.

    Free club rentals and shuttle to and from the golf course are available to overnight moorage guests.

    Fairwinds Golf Club is centrally located between Nanaimo and Parksville on the Nanoose Peninsula.

    This (Bear Mountain Resort – Mountain Course, on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail) is my new favourite golf course – I just love the layout. It’s really one of the prettiest golf courses I’ve played in my life, I’ll come back here on vacation, it’s that good.

    I always treat golf courses as how many poor holes there are. This (Bear Mountain Resort – Mountain Course, on the Vancouver Island Golf Trail) is a very good one. There’s not one poor hole on this golf course.

    Great job on the initial booking and subsequent changes requested. Easy check-in at the golf courses and the hotel made the trip hassle-free. Nice touch with the driving directions and discounts at recommended food and beverage establishments. Will definitely recommend your service to friends and business associates.
